Offering a broad survey of drama from the ancient Greeks to the present — including many new contemporary prize-winners — The Bedford Introduction to Drama has the plays you want to teach in a collection flexible enough to serve your needs in a variety of courses. Fifty-four chronologically arranged plays are illuminated by insightful commentaries and casebooks that enrich students’ contextual understanding and encourage critical thinking. Concise introductions for each historical period and play emphasize theater design, staging, and acting style, and a wealth of photographs and illustrations help students visualize plays in performance. A fresh new design highlights the rich contextual features and additional help for students including a guide to writing about drama, a glossary, and new cross-references to a robust companion Web site.

1.0 out of 5 stars book is good, box was torn Oct. 3 2013
By a mom - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Book is ok, required for my course in lit., but the box it came in was so torn apart it was hardly held together. I rented this book and there was no return receipt inside. Now I have to call CS to see how to return this by the due date or I will be charged the full amount. Amazon please help!
